Solar power to electrify remote Indonesian islands

JGH Solar installed 3 Renewable Energy hybrid power systems at the Karimumjawa islands, Parang, Genting and Nyamuk in Indonesia.

JGH Solar designed, supplied and installed 3 Renewable Energy hybrid power systems at the Karimumjawa islands, Parang, Genting and Nyamuk in Indonesia.

The three islands previously relied solely on diesel generators to secure electrical power – and that was only for 6 hours a day.

With the new renewable energy solar power systems, the 8000 inhabitants of the islands now have electricity 24 hours a day.

Before the solar plants were installed, the islands used more than 35.000 liters of diesel fuel to power the islands.

 “But the consumption (of diesel fuel) may go down to zero because of the three Solar PV power plants. The diesel fuel will only be used as backup,” Karimunjawa district secretary Nor Soleh told the local press.  

The new solar systems has been connected to the old power plant, as a backup for emergency cases. 

“This a an excellent project in cooperation the government, local authorities and the donor. This project should be a use in other regions of Indonesia,” regional commissioner Sujarwanto Dwiatmoko said at the launch of the power plants.

The project was funded by Danida, Denmark’s international development cooperation.

The three Solar PV power plants is a part of Denmark’s environmental support program, whose goal is to establish renewable energy in Indonesia.
